The Hilton West Palm Beach – Darling Hotels of the USA

May 28, 2019

Thank you to the Hilton West Palm Beach for allowing me to spend two nights there. All opinions, as always, are solely my own.

Looking for a hotel in the Palm Beach area that balances style, amenities, affordability, and location, is no small feat. When I checked into the Hilton West Palm Beach, I knew I had found a gem.

LOCATION

600 Okeechobee Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL 33401

The hotel is located next to the Palm Beach Convention Center, just across the street from Rosemary Square {formerly CityCenter} and only a nine minute drive from Worth Avenue on Palm Beach Island. The property is truly in the center of it all, and couldn’t have made getting around Palm Beach any easier! If you’re not looking to drive, there’s two great restaurants in the hotel, and several casual options located nearby as well. I recommend checking out the iconic rooftop restaurant at Restoration Hardware.

THE ROOMS

I stayed in the Queen Junior Suite, and it was an incredible value. The suite was larger than my entire apartment in Manhattan. The Queen Junior Suite features two queen sized beds, a full bath, a sectional, sitting chair, desk, and TV. The suite I was in had floor to ceiling windows with a beautiful view of the pool.

THE POOL

I’ve been excited for years to come to Palm Beach, however after seeing the pool at the Hilton West Palm Beach, I think I could’ve just stayed by the pool all day and been totally okay with never leaving the property. The pool itself is expansive, and the surrounding poolside area has chic striped umbrellas, daybeds, tile detail, and lush palm trees. I felt like I was transported to a resort on a faraway island! If you’re looking for somewhere to staycation where you’ll truly feel like you’ve gotten away from home, this is it. Both the pool and the spa next to it were kept at warm, comfortable temperatures. At night, the area is lit with neon colored lights, adding to the chic, upscale ambiance.

I definitely spent a good hour relaxing on these daybeds – they were so comfortable and an unexpected touch.

The pool area also has large lawns with giant Connect 4, a beautiful {and totally Instagrammable} floral wall, and a bar area! The hotel hosts poolside pilates on the lawn on Saturdays as well.

THE GALLEY – RESTAURANT

On the second night of my stay, I was treated to dinner at Galley, one of the two hotel restaurants. Galley on a Friday night was really the spot to be in West Palm Beach! Live music by the Jam Band was the cherry on top of the cupcake to a fantastic meal. The whole restaurant headed out to the dance floor for cocktails and a good time! Galley is an indoor/outdoor restaurant, and being seated in the outdoor space with a view of the pool for dinner was lovely. So many Instagrammable moments exist in that restaurant – my personal favorite has to be the neon “It was all a dream” sign tucked away in the lounge area.

Although my meal at Galley was fantastic, in the future I would love to see a couple more vegetarian options on the menu for main courses that aren’t pizza or salad. Nonetheless, I had a margarita pizza and it was wonderful. I had the burrata as a starter, which was fresh and definitely up there in terms of burrata I’ve tried.

THE SERVICE

Despite all the wonderful amenities, the true highlight of this hotel for me was the service. Every single employee I passed was friendly, personable, and met me with a friendly “hello, how are you” or “welcome back!” The front desk employees especially were always willing and eager to help in any way possible. Service makes or breaks a hotel for me, and this hotel exceeded my expectations.

THE BOTTOM LINE

The Hilton West Palm Beach isn’t your average chain hotel. Over the course of my two night stay, this hotel continued to impress me. Whether you’re a visitor to the Palm Beach area or simply looking for a relaxing staycation, the Hilton West Palm Beach certainly does not disappoint.
